Dear Editor:
Thanks Gary Endelman for another thought provoking article. I totally support a points system as an alternative to the current, thoroughly bankrupt, permanent labor certification program. But as I pointed out in a letter last week, I think Gary's analytical framework is slightly out of kilter because of his suggestion for dropping employer sanctions. I don't think you can have it both ways. However creative and well thought out a program for "legal" immigration, the logical flip-side is that some people are illegal. Until you address that reality, we are never going to solve the problem. Unless one believes that economic development in the Third World will, anytime soon, reach a level where the lure of employment in the US will not draw tens of thousands of people across our borders, there must be a vehicle to address "illegal" immigration. Employer sanctions? a tamper-proof national ID card? Pick your poison. There ain't no such thing as a free lunch.
